Arsenal looking to offload these players to raise cash for Thomas Partey

Arsenal is keen to land Thomas Partey in the summer and with the belief that the midfielder wants to join, are preparing to offload some of the current crop to raise the funds.

Partey has emerged as one of the best midfielders in Europe this season after his fine performances for Atletico Madrid in Spain and in Europe.

The Gunners face having to pay his release clause, which is about 45 million pounds.

That would be a lot of money for Arsenal to pay, considering that the club has lost some money due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mail Sport is claiming that the club is making plans to sell some players and raise the required funds to land the midfielder.

It claims that Arsenal might sell Matteo Guendouzi, Alexandre Lacazette, or Lucas Torreira to fund the move for the midfielder.

A new midfielder is high on Mikel Arteta’s list of priorities as the Gunners continue to look soft in the middle.

They have been relying on Dani Ceballos since the restart and the Spaniard would likely return to Real Madrid in the summer, at the end of his loan deal, which would leave us a man short in midfield.

Partey would represent a top quality addition to the Arsenal team, and his signing can take the club to new heights. Let us hope that they would find a way to sign him up.

Should Arsenal reconsider selling either of Guendouzi or Torreira? Is it too late for the Frenchman to turn his Arsenal future around?

    There are lots of players that Arsenal could look at off-loading to get Partey (who I think would be fantastic). The three mentioned above are no more likely than Bellerin, Chambers (please no), Kolasinac, Elneny and Mustafi. Although I do suspect that if Partey comes in, then one of Xhaka, Torreira or Guendouzi leave. If I had to choose one, bye-bye Mateo, hope you grow up soon you could be something special.

    Of all the 115 players linked to The Arsenal in the summer transfer window (thanks to Untold Arsenal for keeping count!!!) this one seems to be the strongest of all.
    Partey would be a massive player for us to sign and, if we don’t sign any of the other 114, I would be very happy.

    Crossing my fingers for Partay. Getting him and getting Auba to sign a new contract would be a successful window in my opinion given the circumstances.

      And getting Saka and Martinelli on extended contracts too! 👍

        Saka and Martinelli have both signed long term contracts. Thank God.

    I suspect Sokratis , Elneny and Torreria feature in the first tier of “disposals” but as you say Trudeau,a number of others could be unloaded to generate funds for the likes of Partey.From a family source I have heard we are genuinely interested in the Leeds CB ,White who is on loan from Brighton?From what I have seen he is impressive and he has an asset which none of our current CBs has, namely pace.Watch this space?

    I fully expect Sokratis and Elneny to leave. Unfortunately I do not see us getting much for those. 5 M for Sokratis and 5-10 for Elneny perhaps.

    Torreira might leave too and could fetch more. Could we get 30 or more for him?

    As for CBs I think we need to strengthen midfield first, then get rid of some CBs and then perhaps get a new one.

    I would sort out Auba contract before signing anyone to be honest. But if we release Mhiki on a free then we could perhaps free up wages to offer Auba a new contract.

    Arsenal should get rid of any players who is not prepared to die for the club
